The Sea Cottage (Japanese: みさきのこや Cape Cottage) is a small building located in the northeast of Kanto on Route 25. It is on Cerulean Cape and is home to Bill.
In the games
In Generations I and III, the Sea Cottage is home to Bill. While experimenting with his Teleporter, he was accidentally combined with a Clefairy, and he asks the player to help him by running the Cell Separation System for him. After he is back to normal, he rewards the player with a ticket for the S.S. Anne. Bill will also insist that the player look at the rare Pokémon on his computer: Eevee, Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon.
In Generations II and IV, Bill's grandfather is housesitting and will ask the player to show him certain Pokémon. In return, he will give out related evolutionary stones.
In Generation IV, next to Bill's Sea Cottage, Suicune can be found and caught after it has finished wandering throughout Johto and Kanto.

Bill's Lighthouse in the anime
- Main article: Bill's Lighthouse
While the Sea Cottage does not appear in the anime, the lighthouse in Mystery at the Lighthouse fills the same purpose as the home of Bill.
Ash and his friends first stumbled across the lighthouse after Ash caught a Krabby and it disappeared. When Brock explained that Krabby was sent to Professor Oak's Laboratory due to Ash already having six Pokémon on hand, Ash immediately wanted to call Professor Oak to see if Krabby made it safely. Spotting the lighthouse, the group decided to visit it in the hopes of being able to use a phone there. At the lighthouse, the group met Bill, who told them about the history of the Pokémon world. He also told them about a giant, mysterious Pokémon that he had been researching. Coincidentally, that giant Pokémon ended up showing up at the lighthouse that night, but due to Team Rocket attacking it, the Pokémon ended up destroying the lighthouse and leaving almost immediately, despite Bill's pleas for it to stay.

Sea Cottage in Pokémon Adventures
The Sea Cottage debuted in ...But Fearow Itself! as Bill's home and the place where he makes all of his inventions. Bill was transformed into a mutated Rattata by accident when he was fixing one of his two Pokémon Transporters. As a Rattata, Bill got snatched by a wild Fearow, which Red saved him from before catching it. Later Red helped Bill to turn back to normal, and as a thanks, Bill offered Red the chance to use the Pokémon Storage System to lessen the amount of Pokémon he had to carry around with him.
The Sea Cottage reappeared in the Yellow chapter, where Green snuck into the house in order to find information about the missing Red, believing the culprits behind his disappearance also having been behind her own childhood kidnapping. Bill, thinking she was a burglar, tried to attack her, but was quickly overpowered by Blasty. Green managed to convince Bill into helping her, but before they could find out anything other than that Red had withdrawn his Eevee from the Storage System after his disappearance, they were attacked by a Hitmonlee, which the Elite Four had sent after them, forcing the two to escape.
In the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter, it was revealed that Bill had kept the Ruby and Sapphire retrieved from Team Rocket during the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter at the Sea Cottage. Bill noticed that the gems had started changing back into the orbs they had been before, and called Red and Green to his cottage to investigate, because Blue was away from Kanto at the time. However, before Red and Green could reach the Sea Cottage, Bill was attacked by Maxie and Archie, who stole the reforming orbs and headed towards Hoenn on Bill's boat.
